TEAM 2 - THE N2

Getaway (South Africa) - - On Track -

A beer tast­ing at Honingklip Brew­ery is only fit­ting af­ter a hike. A quick glance at the menu and there were whis­pers about whether we should have lunch here in­stead of The Shuntin’ Shed, as planned. We turned to our trusted jar and it told us to con­tinue, but not be­fore we’d de­cided on our favourite brews: Leigh loved the Blond and Ondela the In­dian Pale Ale. On ar­rival in Bot River, we found The Shuntin’ Shed closed! (Turns out it’s not open on Mon­days and Tues­days). So we drove on and spot­ted the sign for Beau­mont, the re­gion’s old­est wine cel­lar dat­ing back to the 1700s. We shared a Coun­try Plat­ter (ter­rine, Parma ham, cheeses, crusty bread, baby gherkins and whole­grain mus­tard) be­fore jet­ting off to our final stop.
